Diversity Access Schemes

Helena Kennedy Foundation

Founded by Dr Ann Limb in 1998, the organisation was set up following Baroness Kennedy QC’s Learning Works report which identified a significant number of adults who lacked formal qualifications. It pioneered the introduction of bursary schemes for adults, which allow those who need financial support a feasible route back into higher education. HKF awards are currently available to those who are in further education and applying to enter university. In addition, there is also some financial assistance for asylum students, refugees and those with indefinite leave to remain in the country.
